If you believe the media then this is apparently the case but for most singles in Germany this isn’t so.What’s really absurd is that men want women, women want men – there are more singles than ever before – so where then, does the problem lie?
Even better, they dress well, smell of expensive eau de Cologne, and theyre intelligent.
Indeed, the first impression is so overwhelming that it almost always leads directly to the first German dating no-no: Expecting that going to a party full of such hunks will yield a catch. German males are not only fine physical specimens, but they're also weak, wimpy, afraid of commitment, and painfully shy.
It is perfectly possible for an attractive woman -- who in most countries wouldn't have a second to powder her nose from so much flirting -- to stand in the corner alone at a German party and not be approached a single time.
Bottom line: If you want a relationship with a German dude, be prepared to do the heavy lifting yourself.
You often hear and read the statement ‘There are more single people today than ever before’.
Of course, this is not completely accurate, but when you pay a bit more attention to life in a German city, then you can let this sentence through on the nod.
Around 10 pm we decide to have dinner….thanks, didn’t realize we were still eating on European time- I’m fucking starving. I think date 3 is a little soon for a cooking date! I’m sorry, do I have whore/easy/slut/sure thing written all over my face? When he is my boyfriend.” He quickly interjects, “how do you know when you are exclusive?
” I later admit to him that I don’t want to put my awful cooking skills on display quite yet or quite frankly, have him in my apartment on our third date. He adds, “I just want to be somewhere more private, in case we want to get intimate…” What. I quickly, and probably a little more sharply than I should respond, “Excuse me? If that’s what you are looking for then I’m not it.” He takes a big sip of his martini, and says, “well when do you have sex with someone? Do you assume that I am dating other women right now? “I have no idea what you are doing and nor should you have any idea what I am doing.” Silence….
For those of you who come from countries like the US or Canada where politeness is the norm, Germans may surprise you with their rudeness.
But it is actually is the no-nonsense directness that shows they don’t like sugar-coating the truth.
Everyone is hitting it off with other people, except for you.
